Global Facility Solutions Announces New Project at Aruba Marriott Resort & Stellaris Casino in Palm Beach Aruba
Mt. Airy, MD – January 7, 2011 – Global Facility Solutions (GFS), an independent and objective facility solutions provider headquartered in Maryland, today announced the recent addition of a new client, Servidyne Systems (Servidyne) of Atlanta, Georgia. GFS will work with Servidyne to complete an energy master planning project at Aruba Marriott Resort & Stellaris Casino in Palm Beach Aruba.
As part of the contract, GFS will identify and recommend facility upgrade projects to reduce the utility costs and overall cost of operations at the facility.
“Utility rates for electricity and propane at the facility are very high due to the location of the facility (electricity is over $0.21 per kWh),” says Robert K. Calloway, PE, president and owner of GFS. “Therefore, even minor energy upgrades can have a significant impact on the annual energy consumption at the resort facility.”
Recently, GFS worked with Marriott International to perform an on-site energy audit of all building systems at the resort, including HVAC systems and controls, exhaust and ventilation, lighting and lighting controls, domestic hot water, laundry and pool systems. As a result of the audit, GFS identified seventeen energy reduction measures that would reduce the total resort utility bill by over 19% annually.
A master plan for energy reduction upgrades is currently being developed and under review with Servidyne Systems and Marriott International.
Operating without product affiliation, GFS focuses on providing customers with energy and facility solutions to help them optimize building performance, reduce operating costs and deal with every day issues that plague commercial building owners and operators.
